Why do I blog?

Why do I blog?  First, I love to write.  I can express myself better through writing than speaking most often.   Secondly, I feel it is my calling.....to write and encourage others in Christ.   Do I always feel like writing?  Do I feel I have all the answers?   Do I have it all together?  No, no, and no!  I don't feel I am wiser than anyone else.  However, I do feel, in Christ, I have something to offer....hope. 

About 32 years ago, I was on life's journey stumbling and bumbling through.  I was trying the best I could but kept coming up short.  I was battling with rejection, depression, and hopelessness.   I kept doing things that led to more pain and hopelessness but couldn't find the strength to change.  One day I hit a solid wall.  I didn't think I could make it one more day.  It was at that time I attempted to take my life.  I simply had no hope in things ever getting better.   Have you ever felt that way?  Do you feel that way right now? Let me tell you that there IS HOPE IN JESUS.   He is the answer.  He took our place on the cross to cover all our sin and make a way possible to be in close fellowship with God.  He made the way!  He can give you hope and peace where there is nothing but hopelessness and sadness left.  He can take your mistakes and past and turn them into something beautiful.  If God could redeem me from all my brokenness I know He can you too.   Cry out to him today.  If you need more info or prayer, please message me.
